Lamar County Crime Stoppers and the Reno Police Department are asking for help from the public in identifying a man who robbed the Reno Quick Stop convenience store last week.

A man described as Caucasian and 30 to 40 years old came into the store about 6:30 p.m. Saturday and brought a drink to the checkout stand.

“According to reports, while waiting for his change from the clerk, he jumped on top of the counter and removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the register. After taking the cash, the male fled the store on foot,” said Curtis Garrett, public information officer for the Paris Police Department and a spokesman for Crime Stoppers.

The man was caught on store surveillance cameras. He was wearing a black or dark colored shirt, blue jeans, and a straw or tan gardening style hat. He was also described as having a medium build (5’7” and about 150-160 lbs).
